Mid-Campaign Content Boost and Add-Ons Release

Posted by Mighty Boards (Creator)

Dear mutant wonders, as you might have noticed, we’re currently plodding through the dreaded mid-campaign slog. It happens to every campaign and it slows things down, sometimes to a halt. But this is not any other campaign. These are not plodding humans you’re dealing with! 

Part 1: Mid-Campaign Boost Time

So the Council of Mutant Elders has decreed that we shall mutate the pattern and give you guys MORE stuff rather than less! It’s Mid-Campaign Boost time! We are thus releasing a juicy set of goodies that will boost the base game entirely FREE.

Team Versus Mode – Standard Base Game and Deluxe Base Game

Gordon has been hard at work developing and testing a new game mode that adds a whole different dimension to a game of Posthuman Saga: the Team Versus. Here 2 teams of 2 players compete for the favour of the Fortress. Each team will play on the same map, working together to fight enemies, face story encounters together, trade and perform joint or complementary actions to reach their shared Mission Objective together and score as many of the Recon Objectives as they can manage together, and go Mutant Boss hunting together if they so wish to!

The game will take 12 turns and have fewer Broadcast auctions. These will work slightly differently to the normal auction, needing more collaboration from the team-mates to get the tiles and Scavenge sites they want.

Most actions work similarly to the way they do in the standard game aside from the Explore Action which is most often resolved by both players simultaneously. For a team to place a Mission Objective token on the board both players must play an Explore Action in the same turn while ending their move on the same tile. They then face the story or combat encounter together. In the case of a combat encounter they will draw one enemy each and then discuss which weapons cards and abilities to use against them pooling their combined results together.

Players on the same team will also be able to trade together when they are on the same tile.

This mode plays very differently from the competitive game and adds a ton of replayability and fun to the game! Along with the rules for the game we are giving away the necessary components to play it including:

Upgraded Challenge Tokens and 'Maryjane' Turn Counter

Several of you have asked for the Challenge tokens in the Deluxe version of the game to be upgraded. We have decided to unlock this now and put a smile on your mutant faces!

And that's not all… we present to you Maryjane, the Mutant Doll Turn Counter. This was a little thank you we came up with at the start of the campaign for the rocketing start to this Posthuman adventure that we were going to give you guys at the end of the campaign. But we figured, what the hell, let’s just announce it now! Maryjane was found by the Scavenger on a trash heap. She had an arm missing when he found her so he stitched on a makeshift arm from a toy octopus.

We figured a cool looking game like this should have an equally cool looking turn counter. So here it is!



Part 2: Release the Add-Ons!

We have a little squad of Add-Ons for you to slide your tentacles over. To add any of these KS Exclusive Limited add-ons just add the amount to your pledge. You will be asked to specify the item in the pledge manager. 

We're not saving the best one for last… 

The Wanderer Hero Add-On

As you might have noticed from browsing the campaign page, Heroes in Posthuman Saga come with a fair bit of content and create a different way of playing and at times winning the game. The Wanderer has a slightly stronger stat line but comes with a mutation. Having said that, his travels deep into the Mutant Lands have made him adapt to mutations more than other characters, and he can use them more to his advantage than most. This new Hero comes with his deck of unique development cards, deck of combat cards, unique items, tokens, miniature and character card. 



Dice Bundle

Then, by popular demand, we have a Posthuman Saga printed dice bag holding all the dice that come with the Base game and Resistance Expansion. 


 
Posthuman

Finally, we’ve been getting a ton of requests for the original Posthuman. As we mention in the main campaign page we have 300 remaining copies of the game. We’re giving away the Wilds Mini-Expansion with the base game during this campaign. Since a fair few of you have asked for it we suggest you add the $39 to your pledge here. We will give priority to backers who add the amount during the campaign if we go over the 300 copies. This will ship out of Europe and thus any region outside of Europe will incur rest of the world prices. 

-- 

That’s all for now!!! It’s been quite the mutant bonanza and hope you guys enjoy our little parade of mutant pretties. It would be a great help to us and the campaign if you guys could share this campaign with friends, on social media and any other venue you think can spread the tentacles of mutations to new recruits.

Thanks again for your support!

      Will the wilds be available as an add-on? I was not part of the old Kickstarter but I did purchase the original game off someone.

      @TDI: Each character has a lot of components that come with it 24+ cards, tokens, miniature etc. The development cards also mean a different way of playing the game so a lot of development and testing from our part.

      Hmm, 15 $ für just 1 new character... Way too much for me.

    4. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      It will come to $40 so I don't think it's worth it :/.

    5. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @vaanguard: We still have to calculate the exact rates, but, since the original game will be shipping from Europe, shipping to North America will be in the region of $40-45, i.e. the standard ROW rate.

    6. vaanguard on

      @Creator -- Thanks for the explanation. How much will shipping of the original game and free expansion be to the U.S.?

    7. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @€rwin: Thanks for the support, and for your interest in the original game! If we do end up with more than 300 backers pledging for the original game, we'll allocate them by backer number. If we get to 1000 backers who want the original game, though, we'll be able to go for a reprint!

      So I added the $39 for the original post human. How sure am I that I will be one of the 300? I am located in Europe.

    9. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @VonTesse: It's for the dice AND the bag ;)

    10. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @Vanguard: The remaining stock of Posthuman is all in Europe not the US, hence the higher rates.

    11. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @Billy: The price for Posthuman is $39. Shipping is over and above that and will be sent out from Europe so standard prices for Europe and Rest of the World, higher than usual prices for North America and Australia.

      @Stan: Damn you! We were wondering who was putting images of break-dancing tele-tubbies in our heads!

    13. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @Dominic: Yes you can, but we appreciate it being added here to push the campaign along in this time of slog-ness ;)

    14. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      The Mega Mutant - All In will still have to pay for any add-ons like the Wanderer or the Dice Bundle will need to be paid over and above the $99 pledge.

    15. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      Apologies for the confusion about the Dice Add-On. It should read:
      ...we have a Posthuman Saga printed dice bag including an extra copy of all the dice (currently 13) that come with the Base game and Resistance Expansion. When we unlock the other dice and dice upgrades in the social stretchgoals, this add-on will also be upgraded.

      Seems like the Dice Add-On comes with a Dice Bag and 13 dice from the main game and expansion

    17. Randy Pacetti on

      Also confused about what's in the dice add-on...

    18. Mr Anderson
      Superbacker

      @vaanguard - The game is being shipped from Europe and separately from Saga (and early?), hence the more expensive shipping cost. The $46 you state is for the base game of Saga and most likely not as expensive.

    19. Steven Trudel-Henri on

      I want the first posthuman pleassssse pretty please

    20. vaanguard on

      @Creator: Confused about the shipping costs for the original game add-on. The update says "rest of world" shipping, which is $46. Is this correct? Why ROW shipping and not what is being charged for shipping to, for example, the USA for $15? ROW shipping just does not seem fair. Please clarify. Thanks.

    21. Billy Bradford on

      For the original posthuman addon, the price is 39. That is only applicable to shipping within Europe? What is the price for shipping to rest of the world, ie Asia?

      I'm a little confused about the dice bundle. The description notes "Then, by popular demand, we have a Posthuman Saga printed dice bag holding all the dice that come with the Base game and Resistance Expansion." But the image shows dice, and the title for the section is dice bundle. Is this add-on for a dice bag, or a bundle with additional dice? The description suggests it's a dice bag for the dice already included in the game and expansion.

      Mwah ha ha! It seems my last mutation of long-distance mind control is very strong. Proceed with the wanton distribution of shinies.

      Awesome update! Thanks guys I’m all in!!

      @Devon - It is an Add-on, not a stretch goal. Need to add $15 for it.

      We can add on the money for the add-ons in the pledge manager after the campaign, right? (Just checking to be sure.)

      So does the “all in” tier have to add on an additional $15 for the expansion or is that included because... “all in?”
